Workers' Compensation Attorney Fees

Minnesota Workers' Comp Legal Fees

If you have been injured at work, you want to make certain that you get all of the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to. However, you may be concerned about the cost of enlisting an attorney, particularly an experienced attorney who has handled these cases successfully before, to help you through the workers' compensation claims process. You shouldn't be.

Here Is How Much It Will Cost

Attorneys fees are regulated by law in workers' compensation cases, meaning all law firms charge essentially the same fees, whether they just opened their doors or they have more than 50 years of combined experience, like we do. All cases are taken on contingency, meaning there are no fees until benefits are recovered. Here is how the fees breakdown:

  • Of the first $4,000 in benefits recovered, fees are 25 percent.
  • Of the benefits recovered that exceed $4,000, fees are 20 percent.
  • The maximum fee is $13,000 per injury.
  • All fees must be approved by a judge to ensure fairness.

When Should You Contact a Workers' Compensation Lawyer?

Fees are not based on the number of hours worked, but on the amount of disputed benefits recovered. There is no extra cost for enlisting a workers' comp lawyer at the very start of your case. In fact, doing so may streamline the process. It may lead to you getting more benefits, sooner rather than later. Even if your injury just occurred, our Minneapolis lawyers are happy to get to work on your case, striving to get you the most benefits possible as quickly as possible.
